The empirical data from this study indicated that teacher technical expertise was positively linked to the academic performance of their students in a career academy setting. Identifying teachers who have the appropriate level of technical expertise is important for guiding teachers' professional development needs. Moreover, student academic achievement was positively related to teacher skills in integrating computers and technology in the classroom above and beyond their general technical expertise.
